Spot the ‘bra’!
By LUCILLE DASS
You need to get the magic word in the title… yes, aBRAcadaBRA! Now you can breeze through the rest of the BRA-lettered words!
I wouldn’t call it a no-BRAiner. It’s a BRAinteaser, actually. A cheeky one at that, eh! I feel it’s OK to get cheeky for the sake of learning, and it’s good to know what research tells us – that a BRA-- enjoying itself is also known to be functioning effectively. So! BRA-- yourself for a fun learning experience by filling in the missing letters that make up each BRA-word. (Each blank represents one missing letter required to complete the word.)
Come to think of it, the letters BRA hold up lots of words. You can BRA-- me BRA--- if you like but I’m definitely one of those who likes to make learning interesting wherever possible. Seriously, we need to --BRA-- learning in novel ways. As stated, it’s good for the brain.
At the end of this exercise you can BRA- about your score. Why, you may even like to go and ----BRA-- your success at a BRA------. Now, this is a restaurant that serves simple and affordable food. It does not sell any female undergarment, BRA---- or otherwise.
You’re in for a good old-fashioned --BRA----- if you mistakenly look for such merchandise there, however close the appearance of the two words!
Now, this is one word you’d know for sure: a --BRA-- is a roomful of books for your reading pleasure. It is also an excellent place to explore any BRA--- of learning that you may fancy. BRA-- ! You got that right.
By the way, I just celebrated my birthday by purchasing a pretty pearl BRA----- for myself. Then purely on another whim, I spent a tidy sum on a dress that I soon found to be a bit BRA-- for my age; its colour too -- BRA-- for my skin tone. What was I thinking? ----BRA--! I chided myself. And guess what? The little bird in the BRA---- opposite my window felt slighted, BRA------- its wings and took off in a huff!
In life, do brains and BRA-- hold equal sway? What do you think?
